By controlling the crystallinity and average grain size of thermoelectric NaxCoO2 thin films, a doubling of the thermoelectric power factor is achieved in combination with a strong suppression of the thermal conductivity. These structurally engineered NaxCoO2 thin films outperform single crystalline and polycrystalline samples at room temperature and demonstrate the potential of thermoelectric oxide thin films.
